Perinatal Care for You and Your Baby throughout Your Pregnancy

Specializing in Advanced Comprehensive Perinatal Care

Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates (Previously known as John Muir Perinatal Medical Group) is the preeminent perinatal group in the east bay. Founded in 2006 by Dr. Jeff Traynor and joined later that same year by Dr. Rosa Won, Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates has built a reputation of quality, personalized care and attention to detail that has garnered a loyal referral base from surrounding obstetricians and praise from previous patients. Our staff of specialty trained sonographers, experienced medical assistants, caring counselors and friendly administrative assistants supports our physicians in providing the highest level of personalized perinatal care possible. Unlike other "perinatal" groups in the east bay - our physicians are subspecialty trained and board certified in Maternal Fetal Medicine. Before you trust your pregnancy to a "perinatal" group, check to see if their physicians are board certified by visiting the American Board of Medical Specialties (www.abms.org) and click on the tab "Is Your Doctor Certified?". A board certified perinatologist will be board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Maternal Fetal Medicine.  If you are referred to a physician who is only board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology - they are not a board certified Perinatologist. Just as you should not have plastic surgery by someone who is not a board certified plastic surgeon - do not trust your pregnancy to someone who is not board certified in Maternal Fetal Medicine.

At our 20 week regular appointment, we were given the devastating news that the amnionic sac was torn and our baby had little amniotic fluid in which to breath and grow. Amidst all of this Dr. Traynor carefully and gently helped us to understand our options and the possible outcomes. Unlike every other doctor I have seen, Dr. Traynor spent many hours with us, over several weeks, until we came to our decision: to continue with the pregnancy. During the following months, including a six-week hospital stay, Dr. Traynor and his staff were always available for any questions or concerns we had. With a combination of professionalism, positive attitude, and pure friendliness, Dr. Traynor carefully led us through a long and difficult journey, even after our miracle boy was born.
